NZDF personnel attended over 350 Anzac Day services all around the country and overseas, in Gallipoli, France, Belgium, Iraq and the USA to name a few.
This year marks 100 years since the first Anzac Day service. This year, there is a particular focus on the Western Front, where we suffered our greatest loss of life with more than 12,000 New Zealanders killed between 1916 and the end of the war.
Here are a selection of photos from the many services held at home and abroad.
